About Us

The Dartmouth College Glee Club is an outstanding group of 50-60 serious choral singers, led by Louis Burkot since 1981. Our ever-increasing repertoire spans four centuries, with a distinguished performance history including many of the masterworks of choral/orchestral literature, fully-staged Gilbert and Sullivan operettas with all-student casts, large and small a cappella choral works, and the cherished songs of Dartmouth College. Opportunities abound for both solo and small-group singing, as well as student conducting and accompanying. Our members represent a diverse cross-section of the campus, and are involved in a range of other activites - a cappella groups, other Hopkins Center ensembles, college athletics, student government and more. In recent years many of the singers in the Glee Club have been musical leaders in the Dartmouth community, paving the way for many new and innovative performance opportunities on campus.
